An excavator is a camera man

Not only digging but also the recording is important for excavation. We have some recording method at the diggin field; photography is one of them. The accuracy and expedition for photography is necessary for excavators. In usual, we use 35mm film camera, but sometimes, we shoots with middle-size camera called 6 x 7 or large-scale camera with black awning. Middle-scale and large-scale camera is necessary for recording for large ruins; those cameras have good resolution and we can get sharp pictures. The best environment for photography is clowdy daytime; all fields have lighted equally. On the other hand, when it's clear sky the sunny ray makes shadow and hide the area. We cast our eyes up to sky and wait the clowds in such time. It's never idling. But when we get my eyes off from finder and overlook the ruin's full view, a large-scale historical vision can be seen. To tell the truth, the wide view is also needed for archaeological research.
